Autism Information Dissemination

Contact: Director: Annette Estes, 206-221-5674

Core Function: Information Development and Dissemination

Information Dissemination by the Autism Center works to increase knowledge and awareness about autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and related developmental disabilities among professionals and the general public. Project activities aim to promote early detection of autism and inform the community of resources available for individuals of all ages with autism. Early detection increases the likelihood that these individuals will receive intervention services that alleviate many long-term impacts of the disorder.

Information Dissemination includes an array of communication strategies and materials, including annual reports, newsletters, books, brochures, fact sheets and guides that serve to increase awareness about ASD and highlight the work of the Autism Center. The Autism Center website is the primary vehicle for reaching both the professional and community audiences. Additionally, a toll-free information and resource line is available (1-877-408-8922).
